Family Guy creator Seth Macfarlane is launching a pet shelter to honour his late mother, who lost her fight against cancer last year (10).
The funnyman is setting up Perry's Place - The Perry MacFarlane Sanctuary in memory of his mum Ann Perry MacFarlane, who rescued both domestic and wild animals during her lifetime.
The cage-free sanctuary and adoption centre will provide refuge for homeless cats.
Animal lovers have been asked to support the campaign via Causes.com, while an anonymous donor has pledged $10 (£6) for every $1 (£0.63) raised.
